My cigarette lighter stopped working - which fuse is it?

After checking the diagram in the trunk, I can't figure out which is the icon for the cigarette lighter fuse. Anyone have an idea?

Did you check the one in the glove box, also in case you did'nt know the diagram for the trunk fuses is under the medical kit lid on the trunk lid.

mine also went out a couple of years ago... tried to look at the fuse diagrams but it really is difficult to tell.. just bring it in to the dealer (if you still have a warranty).

I had a cell phone charger that blew all 3; mine were in the trunk on the rear most (if I remember correctly) panel. You have to unscrew the tabs to get the cover off.

Does anyone have a legend that shows what each picture on the fuse diagram behind first aid kit actually means? The manual didn't have it.

My front cigarette lighter is not working and I have replaced the fuses in the boot/trunk without any success. Any ideas what else it could be? Issue in wiring loom maybe??
